Marine fishes face an array of environmental contaminants that may reduce their ability to perform in ecological situations. The effects of factors producing direct mortality in populations, such as fishing, are often easier to quantify than sublethal impacts. The overall objective of this proposal is to determine the toxicity of individual dispersants (e.g., NALCO’s COREXIT 9500) and contaminants including Louisiana Sweet Crude oil and mixtures of dispersants and contaminants on the fish fauna of deep waters.
